Williams was ecstatic to pick up an offer from the Florida Gators

Over the weekend, the Florida Gators coaching staff sent out a few new offers to several prospects including some underclassmen.

2022 defensive lineman Mykel Williams (6-5, 245, Columbus, GA. Hardaway) picked up an offer from the Gators after he talked with one of Florida’s coaches.

“Coach [David] Turner offered me,” Williams said on the coach from Florida who offered him over the weekend. “He was telling me that he watched my film and he loved how I play.”

Williams now has eight offers but he says he was shocked to hear from the Gators about an offer.

“I was surprised when coach offered me,” he said on what the offer meant to him. “I was ecstatic to get the offer and every offer means a lot to me.”

Defensive line coach David Turner explained to Williams on Saturday how the Gators have developed several great defensive linemen as of late.

“He said he’s going to watch to see how my body grows before we talk about a position,” Williams said on where Turner wanted him to play. “He said Florida is pass rush U and he thinks I can fit into that.”

Williams wants to visit the Gators and when he does he wants to learn more things about Florida’s program as he only knows a few things so far.

“I know they have great facilities there,” he said on what he knows about Florida. “I like their fan base but I want to visit and see the facilities such as the locker room, the stadium and also the campus. I want to see what their educational department is about too.”

The Gators have some early competition for Williams as several other program are recruiting the defensive lineman hard.

“Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia Tech,” Williams said on the schools recruiting him hard. “I don’t have any leaders right now.”
